61GBA4iOS is a popular Game Boy emulator that has been available for a while on iOS. Basically, GBA4iOS allows iOS users to play Game Boy Advance and original Gameboy ROMs on their iPhones and iPads.

Previously, jailbreaking served as the only option to install and run GBA4iOS on your iPhone and iPad, but things have changed. Users now can easily install on their iPhones and iPads running iOS 10 without jailbreak.

For some background, last year, Apple made some changes to its developer program. Accordingly, Apple now allows the installation of non-Apple apps on your iPhone and iPad without jailbreak. This means that you now can sideload apps on your iOS device.

In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to download GBA4iOS on an iOS 10 iPhone or iPad.
